WHO ARE WE?
The Antenna Technicians Association Incorporated, is a Trade Body, founded in 1985 and dedicated to increasing the public awareness of the value of having a quality Television aerial product installed by a professional tradesman, increasing the general standard of installation practices in the industry and representing the concerns of members to Local, State and Federal Governments.
In an effort to increase members profiles, we are now placing summaries of member's businesses on this site. If you would like to judge whether any particular members business suits your needs, you will find links to these summaries on the membership listing page. If there is no link button beside their name, we are yet to receive or install their synopsis.
If you would like more detail about the Association, it is available, here. Office holders of the Association are open to any contact to discuss matters such as joining the Association, work practice standards, training schemes, reports of poor work practices in the industry and will provide information on our internal procedures in the event that you have a problem with one of our members. You might even like to tell us of your good experiences with our members.
The Association conducts Distance Learning course for members and other interested persons who wish to improve their skills in the antenna field. The distance learning course is designed to be undertaken in conjunction with "on the job" training, such as you would have if you were working as an unskilled installer, in the industry. Ideally, your employer is a member of the Association who can assist you as you work through the course. In other cases, the training coordinator can provide some limited assistance by way of explanations, where you are in unfamiliar territory. Please read through the introduction to the training course. If you are interested in this course, there is an application form available to be downloaded and forwarded to us.
